Belfast Black

Black Granite

Belfast Black is an exquisite black natural stone which has been quarried in South Africa since the 1950's. It is one of the most well known and most popular South African granites. It is used extensively for monuments all over the country.

This is an extremely dense, fine grained natural stone which absorbs very little moisture. The supply of this stone is very limited which makes it extremely expensive.
